Holiday cheer!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! My wishes were granted yesterday when I opened up a package to reveal my coveted watch! I love that the little dials actually tell the day of the week, the date, and the time in military hours. I'll keep updating with some of my other Christmas surprises-- starting with the belt and scarf I wore today.

Madewell shirt and belt, Nordstrom scarf, Fossil Riley watch, Ralph Lauren boots, Gap 1969 Jeans.

One last thing...

Now this is a watch. 

Currently I have a different watch from Fossil (this one), which I luh-ve by the way. BUT the top of my wishlist is the rose gold beauty pictured above. I love that the face is covered with crystals but not in a Bedazzled-gone-wrong sort of way. Just in a perfect way. I also like the boyfriend style, and this one is not too big or clunky looking. 

I cannot wait until Christmas morning!

Watch out!

Nordstrom shirt, H&M pants, Cooperative wedges, F21 necklace, Vera Bradley watch bands.

Today I got inspiration from the December Free People catalogue that I just received, specifically this picture:

...and a little bit of this as well:

I just love the way that it's so flowy and free! I approached the look in a more structured and subdued way...

except for my accessories! Last night I remembered that I had these colorful Vera Bradley patterned watches, so I searched around and dug them up. They are from a set of four bands with an interchangeable watch face. When I opened the box up though, I noticed that the watch had stopped working. So instead of abandoning the idea altogether, I decided to wear them as is! They give an unexpected pop of color to an otherwise monochromatic ensemble.

Love the little things

I love putting outfits together, and accessories are my favorite part! I thought I would focus on all of the little details this week...sort of like micro view.

Channeled my inner ballerina today, and DIY pink tights headband. What? You say... A headband made of tights? Check out how I did it here. Like so many other little girls, I used to dream of being a ballerina. However, when that dream faded away I was left with memories of dance class and many, many pairs of pink tights. Now I have given them a second life!

Fossil watch, Steve Madden Desert boots, Heritage chambray shirt, and Madewell tee.

I seemed to have stumbled upon Stumbleupon! It's how I spend all my free time's where I find cool stuff like this.
